Had a lovely meal there and very cheap too. Staff are friendly. I had the most amazing tuna jacket potato and the plate was stacked full of salad. Very attentive staff too.

Have eaten in here a few times and while the staff are lovely, the menu is limited. Food is fresh and nicely presented, but, compared to the choice in Birchington, it doesn't entice me back.

We visited the cafe at lunchtime on a Friday - it was busy and the waitress was working her socks off. The waiter was just chilling. I asked to swap the chips that came with the curry to a salad - no worries. The curry was hotter than i would normally eat and there could have been more rice but... More

A cafe that is deceptive in looking like a "greasy spoon" but having very good standard style lunches. Pleasant staff. Popular with locals.

Dropped in for a quick brunch. The service is outstanding, and the food lovely. We just wanted something quick, and while the coffee and the food came out fast, we never felt rushed. The BLT is awesome.

Honestly, this is 100 million percent the best place in Thanet to get a decent fry up. I choose to drive all the way over here rather than going somewhere close to my house in Margate even when I have a horrific hangover. The staff are so friendly, they do the best milkshakes and hot chocolates and it's really cheap.... More

Cheese omelette, chips and beans and apple pie and custard for £4.99, you cannot beat that and there was enough for two!!! Our table also had a... More

Had a great meal here. Listen up! It's not cordon bleu! It's English cafe food! Try the chicken curry and chips ..,, I know it's wrong! And they're happy to swap things around, like beans for salad, so it's all good. :)

Myself and some family visited here this morning for a hangover breakfast and it certainly lived up to its fab reputation. Very clean, friendly and happy staff. Enjoyed what I had to eat and drink.
